    What we've been telling everyone here on Pocketnow -- in articles, editorials, videos and even on the Pocketnow Weekly podcast -- seems to be exactly what the general perception in technology is today: "megapixels don't count". We will now tell you the exact opposite: "megapixels do count", but only if they are used the way Nokia is employing them in its PureView technology. Why Can't It Take 41-Megapixel Images? You see, many people will think that "41 megapixels is overkill", "41 megapixels is useless", and so on. We're here to vehemently contradict them, and, after you will understand ...

    When Nokia introduced the 808 PureView at this year's MWC, everybody was shocked to hear that the Finnish manufacturer packed a 41-megapixel sensor inside the phone. Of course, Nokia wanted a decent follow-up to the Nokia N8 which was, for a long time, the king of camera phones. Now, the new King is here! The box contains the 808 PureView, an 1,400mAh battery pack, a wall charger, USB cable for syncing and charging, a wrist-wrap and in-ear noise canceling headphones. The 808 PureView is powered by a 1.3GHz processor, aided by a dedicated Broadcom BCM2763, has a four-inch ClearBlack AMOLED ...

    Richard Kerris, Nokia's Vice President of Worldwide Developer Relations, unveiled that "it wont be long" until Verizon fans will finally get the opportunity to use Nokia devices. Currently the Finnish phone maker has no offering on Big Red and future possible customers are either left waiting for a Nokia phone or have to leave for another carrier in order to grab one. Unfortunately, no exact time frame was made public. As far as the PureView technology is concerned, the one which debuted on the Symbian-powered 808 which is, as of now, available in the U.S., it will come to Windows ...

    It's nearly 14mm thick, tips the scales at 169g, and sports a display of only four inches. Its radio includes 3G support for just one American network, with 2G support for another, and not a hint of LTE in sight. The one band that could have given it additional 3G connectivity, 1700MHz, was present on the European version but excised from its North American variant. Though it may receive the occasional update, its operating system is effectively a dead platform, running at 1.3GHz on a single-core CPU. Oh, and it costs nearly $700. Yes, the North American version of the Nokia 808 PureView ...

    The Nokia 808 PureView, while announced at this year's MWC, is still not available in most of the markets (U.K. included) but it looks like the Finnish manufacturer might follow up on the information according to which the 41-megapixel camera with a phone will be landing in the U.S. Nokia U.S. posted these two images on its Facebook wall. While these left everyone wondering what it will be exactly that Nokia is planning on introducing on June 18 (this Monday), the consensus seems to be the 808 PureView. The map above represents Hawaii and the area code for Hawaii is 808. The image below ...

    The Nokia 808 PureView will most probably take over the title of "king of camera phones" from the Nokia N8 (and later on from the Apple iPhone 4S and the rest) but the main problem with the phone is that it is running a platform, Symbian, abandoned by Nokia. We heard that the PureView technology might be landing eventually on Windows Phone but Chris Webber, President of Nokia U.S., admitted that the company is working on bringing the technology to Windows Phone. A combination of Lumia and PureView will definitely give both the Finnish manufacturer and Microsoft a boost since the current ...
